Spring-Start 2014 Applications Accepted: January 6 - 10, 2014
Applications will not be accepted before January 6th or after 5:00pm on January 10th.
Mailed applications must be postmarked by January 10th.
The Wenatchee Valley College (WVC) Radiologic Technology (RT) Program is a spring-start, 8-quarter program.
All applicants will be notified by late January regarding application status.
Acceptance to WVC does not guarantee acceptance into the RT Program.
You must be 18 years of age or older before entering clinical education.
Incomplete applications will not be considered.
Information Sessions Every fall, winter, and spring quarter, two Allied Health information sessions will be offered. All students planning to apply to an Allied Health program should try to attend an information session (this requirement can be waived for students who live out of the area). Complete this step as early as possible. One session will be offered via ITV on Omak's campus.
Thursday, January 16th - 2:00pm - Wenatchi Hall 2105 (ITV to Omak - Friendship Hall)
Tuesday, February 11th - 3:30pm - Wenatchi Hall 2105 (ITV to Omak - Friendship Hall)
Transfer Students To determine which transfer credits meet RT prerequisites, you may request an official Credit Evaluation. This step usually takes a few weeks to complete. You can also use the Equivalency Chart. This chart is subject to change and is meant to be used as a guide only.
If you wish to have your application and prerequisites reviewed, schedule an appointment with the Educational Planner for Allied Health early (509.682.6830). No appointments to review applications will be scheduled during the one week window when applications are being accepted.
Apply to WVC. If you are currently taking fall quarter classes at WVC, you do not need to reapply.
Complete all prerequisites by the end of fall quarter with a "C" (2.0) or higher.
Attach sealed, official college transcripts from all colleges where you have earned credit (excluding WVC).
Note: If you are taking fall classes at another school (besides WVC), and your fall grades will not be posted on your official transcript by the application due date, attach an unofficial transcript showing your fall grades (this is in addition to the official transcript).
Ensure that your cumulative college GPA is a 2.5 or higher.
Attend an information session (see above for more information).
Selection of applicants for the RT Program is based on a probability of success score. Scores are determined using:
Your cumulative college GPA.
Your average grade from BIOL& 241 and BIOL& 242 (or equivalent transfer courses).
Note: repetition of BIOL& 241 and/or BIOL& 242 (or equivalent transfer course) due to (a) earning a grade lower than a "C" (2.0), (b) withdrawal, or (c) changing from credit to audit mid-quarter will result in a deduction of points. Each repetition will result in additional deductions. Deductions negatively affect the probability of success score.
After Acceptance Successful applicants will receive a packet from the Allied Health Department detailing these next steps. Do not include these items with the application.
Pay a $50, non-refundable, acceptance fee.
Provide current Healthcare Provider CPR card (must include first aid, CPR, and AED for adults, children, and infants).
Provide documentation of 7-hour Washington state HIV/AIDS certificate.
Provide documentation of immunizations (for more information, click here).
Provide verification of major medical insurance (accident/injury).
Provide background check information.
Provide results of a five-panel drug test from a certified lab.
Complete the Allied Health Packet.
Provide proof of liability insurance (calculated into tuition and fees at time of registration; tuition receipt can thus be used as proof).
On-the-job physical requirements include: ability to lift 50 pounds, carry 20 pounds, sit for 4 hours, and stand for 8-12 hours.
Students who leave the program for any reason must submit a new application for re-entry. In some cases, a qualifying interview with the RT Program Coordinator may be required. Students can be re-admitted only once.
Conviction of certain crimes may prevent completion of the clinical course requirements of the program and may prevent future licensure and employment in health care. A criminal record check is required prior to any clinical training experience or clinical field trips. Students with a criminal record should meet with the Dean of Allied Health (509.682.6660) to determine if the criminal history would prevent access to a health care facility. To determine if the criminal record would prevent eligibility to take the national exam, visit the ARRT website (arrt.org) and download information from the "ethics" section.
